BBC Films

Here's a map showing the countries of origin for best films of the 21st century based on a critics’ poll organized by the BBC in 2016. The original poll didn't include the countries of origin for the films in the poll. I created a database which listed the countries of origin and visualized the data in a map.

Writing & Translating

I helped former Nokia CEO Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo write his memoirs. Here's an article I penned about Finland's literary scene when I was the editor at Parnasso, the largest Finnish-language literary magazine in the world. I have translated several books from English into Finnish, among them Talouden 10 tuhoisinta ajatusta [Ten Most-Destructive Economic Ideas] by Björn Wahlroos, the Nordics' leading banker.
